    Draw three lines (not necessarily straight) so that each circle is connected to another circle with the same letter (that is, A to A, B to B, and C to shining C). The lines may not intersect one another, and they may not extend beyond the rectangle.

    The number groups below are the last five digits of the fifth powers of the numbers 31 through 39. However, the groups aren't in the right order to represent the fifth powers of 31 through 39 sequentially. Using only these digits, and without using a calculator, can you place the groups in the correct order?
